> Subject: UCF Bug Closet Website Open!
> Dear all,
> I am happy to announce that we have launched a new website for the Bug
> Closet: http://bugcloset.cos.ucf.edu/. In September 2010, we dedicated
> the collection in honor of its founder and renamed it "The Stuart M.
> Fullerton Collection of Arthropods at the University of Central
> Florida." We continue to call it the Bug Closet and the formal
> collection codon is UCFC.
> We are the largest and the most comprehensive collection of Central
> Florida insects, with a heavy emphasis in Hymenoptera and Coleoptera.
> We have more than 440,000 specimens, all of which are specimen-level
> databased. The database, which is in a FileMaker format, is currently
> available through the website, and we plan to upgrade it to a platform
> that enables us to share our data in a darwin core format in near
> future.
> We plan to update our website periodically and add more contents. For
> those of you who have been wondering what happened to the Bug Closet,
> we are very much alive and well, doing our best in documenting
> biodiversity in our corner of the planet.
> Best wishes,
> Hojun Song
